The Asian Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility (AFCSR) is the largest annual conference on corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the region. It was launched in 2002 by the AIM-Ramon V. del Rosario, Sr. Center for Corporate Social Responsibility, one of the first research centers in Asia concentrating on corporate responsibility issues.
The AFCSR is composed of about 17 sessions, attended by around 500 delegates. The conference features the integration of (1) plenary sessions addressed by keynote speakers; (2) breakout sessions focusing on specific dynamics, learnings, and best practices of companies; (3) an expo showcasing specific company CSR programs, and (4) optional field visits to innovative CSR program sites in and around the city.
Following 12 successful conference runs in seven of Southeast Asia’s major destinations---Manila, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bali, Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore— the AFCSR continues to be at the forefront of CSR development in Asia.
